Some photographers go to extreme lengths to get the perfect photograph. You’ll find mountain bike photographers going off the grid in Afghanistan to get never seen before shots, surf photographers getting crushed by barrel after barrel to get that one shot and snowboard photographers ploughing persistently through the backcountry in search of the original.
But it’s not just the professionals who get themselves into danger when they’re behind the lens. No, the everyday civilian is quite capable of finding trouble where it barely exists – just take the dude who racked a $153,000 medical bill while trying to take a selfie with a rattlesnake, or the Australian skier who fell off an 1000ft cliff while trying to take a selfie, or, well, you get the idea. The human race is full of idiots.
